Joe was born in Kalamazoo, Michigan, on December 13th 1965. He started painting and working on cars when he was 15 years old. His career started when he attended college at Denver Auto/Diesel in 1985 when he was 18 years old right out of high school. Joe’s been working in the body shop industry for the past 33 years now and he’s always been working on restoration work at home as a hobby, which has now turned into a full time business.

The Son

Paul was born in Kalamazoo, Michigan, on January 8th 1991. He has had a passion for cars since he was a child, going to car shows and working on cars with his father.
